Our cup runneth over!
We've just returned from a fabulous stay at Lorne Doone Cottage. The location and views are sublime - downstream to the sea and upstream to the convergence of two bubbling rivers where waters meet. The house was wonderfully comfortable and clean with everything we could possibly need to feel homely and welcoming - including a homemade cake. Thanks so much for a great weekend. We'd love to come back.
